minor oil leak ?

My 03 S has a small leak coming from one of the spark plugs . thinking it is the valve cover . any opinions on this would be great. Keep in mind 03 cars do not have spark plug tubes .

Yeah just saw. My mistake. I did some searching though, and saw that there is still an oil seal ring between the oil protection tube and the valve cover. Maybe that went bad?
